paintings and monotypes

I loved being the visiting artist at the Sundance Resort in Utah in March. The Timpanganos Mountains and creeks there are inspiring in very season but it was lovely to feel the crisp air as I painted the snow covered terrain. Check out the new work on my Terrain page or join me at Sundance in November for a 4 day artist retreat.

Conflict Zone: Sinjar to St. Helena
